For this assignment, you have the opportunity to focus on a private-sector organization of your choice. (One that you have not previously examined.) Discuss how this organization is approaching the issue of “big data” and data analysis. What data is it collected and why? How is it used? How is it transformed from data to information? What future directions do you see your chosen organization taking with regard to data collection and management insofar as HR management is concerned?
Review the background materials and find additional resources to help you complete this assignment.
Bring in at least 2 library sources to help strengthen your discussion.
Paper length: 3-4 pages, not counting the cover and reference pages.
